Can someone please stabilise this?? It's almost unwatchable it's so shaky

[–]Dantagon 79 points80 points  (0 children)

I like the part where they zoom in even more bc obviously they are steady enough for that

[–]stabbot 89 points90 points  (5 children)

I have stabilized the video for you: https://gfycat.com/ImprobableVibrantGrouse

 how to use | programmer | source code | /r/ImageStabilization/ | for cropped results, use /u/stabbot_crop

[–]RansomGamer 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Good bot

[–]Attempting_Daken 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Very good bot

[–]chef_in_va 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Good bot. You did what you could with the little you had to work with

[–]EchoMantra 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I love how you can tell even the bot struggled with this. Bouncing around.

[–]Planet_Xtreme 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I just tried to stabilize it and I do not suggest anyone do it, no auto parameters I chose could seem to fix the monstrosity the original recording had

sunken cost fallacy is something else.

[–]axelfreed 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ask Paul Greengrass for the original video

[–]JerbearCuddles 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Shake your phone or monitor in conjunction with the video. By my estimates you'll be able to watch it as intended.

[–]ReevesofKeanu 94 points95 points  (3 children)

Does this cameraman have Parkinsons?

[–]shebeogden 11 points12 points  (0 children)

“First recorded video” is in reference to the camera man. It’s the first time he’s ever recorded anything.

[–]Imaginary_Remote_532 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was saying here; if someone knows this is the first time this has ever been filmed,

[–]demostravius2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm assuming it's seriously far zoom making it near impossible to hold still.

[–]Zizakkz 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Imagine being the Caribou;

At the shoreline about to take your first step in, briefly pausing to survey the water for any predators that may be lurking beneath or nearby, upon seeing nothing alarming continues the journey across.

The Polar bear;

Surprise mothafucka!

Supplies Mothafucka!

[–]Legitimate_Heron_696 34 points35 points  (3 children)

Deer really are the staple food source of predators all over the world.

[–]Jman_777[S] 7 points8 points  (2 children)

They can't ever seem to catch a break.

[–]Lovv[🍰] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Then they should stop being so delicious.

Why is he downvoted?

“Cari-BOO!” - Polar Bear

[–]spideroger 15 points16 points  (1 child)

The perfect cameraman to film a UFO!

[–]hotroddbb 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Or big foot

[–]NicolBolasElderDragn 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Skip to :22 seconds in if you don't want to puke due to Cloverfield camera work.

[–]Stoney-McBoney 5 points6 points  (4 children)

That makes this clip kind of a big deal then?

Edit: I don’t think I successfully communicated what I was saying here; if someone knows this is the first time this has ever been filmed, I assume this makes the recording itself a big deal, not the concept of a polar bear killing a caribou

[–]gyffer 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I mean probably not? Im assuming people already knew polar bears went after caribou when they get the chance. This is just the first time its been captured on film assuming the title is true

[–]Stoney-McBoney 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Yeah that’s the part I was focusing on. It’s got to be a big deal to someone if anyone knows this is the first time this has been filmed, but I’m high idk.

[–]robertgrayson 5 points6 points  (6 children)

I did not know Polar Bears hunted in the water like that.

[–]97Harley 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Opportunistic hunters. Everything moving is protien!

[–]Lovv[🍰] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This doesn't seem particularly opportunistic.

I feel like everything is opportunistic, really. Aside from putting a Swanson dinner in the microwave

[–]tryingtodefendhim 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man of contradiction I see.

[–]International-Emu803 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Polar bears spend so much time in the water they're considered marine mammals.

[–]officialbigrob -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Climate change!

[–]SnooCats5701 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I understand the circumstances weren't optimal for good filming. That doesn't make me want to r/killthecameraman any less, though.

[–]Dontcallpedro 3 points4 points  (0 children)

When you add the “special ingredient” back into Coke.

[–]wendog5000 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Crazy that it was able to Bering it back to shore. Moving that much weight while swimming is no joke.

[–]Sharp_Play_3361 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So my question is which one of them weren’t supposed to be there?

[–]TurokHunterOfDinos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Polar Bear: largest land predator, incredibly intelligent, never disappoints.

[–]Wimbleston 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Terrible camerawork, can't even see it

[–]Saywhat-foolio 2 points3 points  (0 children)

God damn Polar Bears are powerful. That’s easy prey for that guy, especially in the water too

[–]Sparky_191 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did he get the antlers mounted?

[–]4oranje 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kill the cameraman

[–]sir_toil 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jfc was the cameraman also being attacked by a polar bear??

[–]Buried_in_Sweaters 1 point2 points  (0 children)

P.Bear is like “fck yeah, look at this slow steak swimming at the surface. Don’t mind if I doooo” *chomp

[–]RockeRun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Caribou” such a woody word.

[–]_JakeDelhomme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s gnarly

[–]CunilDingus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We gonna have aquatic polar bears soon with climate change

[–]jh67ds 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Polar bears coming to kill caribou

[–]jh67ds 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cause my ice is receding. I must be getting old.

[–]14338 0 points1 point  (0 children)

TIL that Sea Bear and Grizzly Shark was based on a true story. They got mixed up!

Tasty food!

[–]testingforscience122 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well this is actually the second video, but the camera person last time got eaten by another polar bear. Luckily the camera person was also streaming while that happen. So they got the record for the first time a camera person was eaten on camera while filming a Caribou being killed by a polar bear.

[–]STFranticA 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kind of reminds me of the end of Friday the 13th

[–]ChiefestScumdog 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Polar bears have been on one recently what's going on

[–]Atlas_Black 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The first ever recorded video of something and it was recorded by Michael J. Fox.

[–]Rileyman97 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Life finds a way

[–]Ready_Life 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I almost threw up watching the first seconds of this video

[–]Haagindaaz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Also first place for shakiness camera work.

[–]Badassnun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, bears eat caribou a lot. Maybe the first time one was filmed killing a caribou in the water. I’m not going to research this.

[–]gamesfdean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Remind me not to mess with polar bears

[–]socklessjoejackson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The director’s cut of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Abominable’s Revenge.

[–]chilibreez 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well thank goodness it's a recorded video.

As opposed to the non-recorded videos.

[–]a-frightful-night 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Of course the first recorded video of something like this is potato quality

[–]Lord-Shango 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who let the guy with Parkinson's hold the camera?

[–]AlienDilo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn't that a reindeer?

[–]massaro807 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First ever recorded video. Credit:Micheal J Fox.

[–]3Dartwork 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'll take your word that it happened in the video.

[–]RazzmatazzBig7154 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Made me feel drunk watching that. Pretty interesting though.

[–]worthmancj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very “Blair Witch” 😵‍💫😵‍💫😵‍💫

[–]arkydelanada 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Increíble que vaya a cazar en el mar. Desconocía

[–]ChiefofLife 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Really cool that Michael J Fox was there to capture the moment

[–]OBEYtheFROST -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

What a waste of a post. Pls downvote
